For the Love of Teenagers: Advocating for Safe, Restorative High School Environments

By: Claire Latané, LAF 2018 Fellow
LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership

Claire advocates for high school environments that support students’ mental health and well-being. Using Los Angeles as a case study, she works with students, educators and administrators, designers, non-profits, city agencies, and the community to develop policy and design that reflect a sense of love and safety rather than security and fear. Recorded at the Landscape Architecture Foundation’s Innovation and Leadership Symposium on May 17, 2018. As part of the LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership, fellows delivered presentations of their year long journey that highlighted their research and personal growth and shared bold visions for the future of landscape architecture.
